Capcom: No Monster Hunter 3 till 2009

Cubed³ reports that the once PS3 title and now Wii exclusive, Monster Hunter 3, won't be hitting retail until 2009, according to a report on Live Wii (in French.)

Capcom's Christian Svensson was recently asked for a release date. He responded: "I'm not saying when... but it isn't 2008 (as a game) of this magnitude requires years of development."

The story is too old to be commented.

Sony owners MADE this game what it is...this should have been on the PS3.

I'm sure if PS3 wasn't struggling to shift 15K units a week in Japan it would still be a PS3 exclusive, but the fact that gamers in Japan continue to steer clear of Sony's budget-buster is hardly Capcom's fault.

Capcom lost My $60 when they moved this to Wii.

Capcom said the PS3 was 'to expensive to program for'...bullshit. They are porting the PSP game to the Wii and calling it a new game.

TheExodus3421d ago

Excellent, we're finally going to get a 3rd party Wii title that wasn't copy & pasted together from PS2 code on an intern's coffee break!

BISHOP-BRASIL3421d ago

Yeah... Wait for that. Why do you think they moved from PS3 to Wii? Bingo, they shall use the PS2 engine for graphics/mechanics/physics.

Even if I don't really know if they completely move it from PS3, since it was announced talking about the new multiplatform policy from Capcom and I don't remember anyone's Capcom saying "PS3 version canned"... Still, even if there is a PS3 version, Wii vesion will pobably have a optimized vesion of the PS2 MH's engine.

That this game is on the wii..

snakeak3421d ago

It could have been a really great game with HD graphics and solid online with PSN. Instead we'll get some whack wand swinging control scheme...

Torkith3421d ago

I was devastated to hear that it was going to the Wii, a game like Monster Hunster that looked so great on the PS2, deserves to be made with the best graphics possible. I had to buy a Wii for this game, but I only they that Monster Hunter 4 or Monster Hunter Online or something like that comes to the PS3.

I was hyped for this game when it was on the PS3 but now, not so much. I think the controls will suck, the graphics will suffer, and the Wii's online is terrible. Bad move on Capcom's part IMO.

Oh well at least I still have MHF2 on my PSP to play.
